Coming up in this week's Gambit: Music for Joe Six-Pack, Joe the Plumber, and Joe Mama

Posted By on Sat, Oct 18, 2008 at 3:42 PM

It's Gambit's guide to the 10th annual Voodoo Music Experience, with a pullout section that includes schedule cubes, a map, band profiles, and interviews with everyone from R.E.M.'s Mike Mills to Sharon Jones of Dap-Kings fame...along with TV on the Radio, Panic! At the Disco, Tokyo Police Club, and more more more.

• In our cover story, Alison Fensterstock explores the phenomenon of Lil Wayne -- from the 17th Ward to the top of the charts....

Noah Bonaparte Pais checks out the ways that the Obama/McCain race is shaping up on local college campuses....

Clancy DuBos chronicles the rise and fall of Derrick Shepherd, and wonders if Shepherd's resignation will help keep Bill Jefferson in office....

Jeremy Alford notices that Bobby Jindal hasn't exactly been front and center helping John Kennedy in his battle to unseat Sen. Mary Landrieu, and wonders: O Governor, Where Art Thou?....

• And the November issue of our monthly home and lifestyle magazine, CUE, is all about New Orleans food culture. Your guide is CUE editor Kara Nelson.

Pick up a copy on Sunday before the Saints/Panthers game (Alejandro de los Rios will be here blogging and doing color commentary on Brees v. Delhomme), or click back here on Monday afternoon for the online edition. Now get off the computer and go enjoy this beautiful weekend. (Is fall really, truly, finally here at last?) -- Kevin
